If you are a "non-responder or OpenID-er" which to me means I have no way of responding to a comment that you've left, please leave a way for me to get in touch with you, especially if you're participating in a blog give-away or if you are asking for information or links.
By leaving your email within your comment, I can find you. I realize that this is sometimes a scary thing to do with scams and all but if you disguise the email as say.....

this is the perfect way to hide from the unwanted eye. So please help me out if you are one of the non-responders.
Thank you, in advance.....Ravelly Rhonda!!

Fabrics Chosen

In a recent POST, I talked about a new applique project that I'm thinking about from a photo I took.
I don't have a plan when I start these kinds of things. I just know that I love what I see and go from there.

First, I made a reverse copy of the photo... this is for tracing onto the steam-a-seam (my favorite adhesive and no, I'm "not" doing needle turn applique.... LOL). Next, I started pulling fabrics that appealed to me and fabrics that seemed to match the colors in the photo (all from my stash that seems to grow instead of decrease). Black and dark brown are not pictured with the fabrics but I will add those later for shading. I don't know if you can see the background fabric I chose between the two photos at the top but it's a marble grayish batik that is perfect...... love it!!!
That's what I've done so far. The next step will be taking apart the areas I want to work on such as tree trunks, branches and brush.
Stay tuned.
